Download e-book for iPad: felix aestheticus: Konversationskunst im ZKM Karlsruhe by Kurd Alsleben,Heiko Idensen,Antje Eske

By Kurd Alsleben,Heiko Idensen,Antje Eske

An eight Wochenenden wurden im ZKM|Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe im Rahmen der Ausstellung ´Konversationskunst´ von Kurd Alsleben und Antje Eske insgesamt 15 offiziöse Konversationen unter Besuchern, Freundinnen, und Freunden gehalten. Konversationskunst ist das gemeinsame künstlerische Gestalten gemeinsamen gesamtsensorischen Umgangs. Fälle regulate Konversationskunst gehen bis in die antike (ars sermonis) zurück. Offiziös meint ein Consort mit interessanter Mischung aus konversen und harmonischen Momenten und einem Umfang persönlichen Kontaktes. Die Beteiligten sind wohl von Antwortnot getragen, aber es werden keine Erkenntnisse oder Problemlösungen gesucht.

In diesen Kunstaffairen wurden deshalb auch keine Themenpläne abgehandelt, sondern thematische Anregungen und Spiele eingebracht. Der Austausch führt nicht zu konkreten Ergebnissen, sondern erzeugt durch regelmäßige Wiederholung kulturellen Humus. Solch ein methodisches Vorgehen fördert eine neue Kulturtechnik. Die indoktrinierende Herrschaft der Semantik des Jahrzehnte währenden Human-Computer-Interaction-Paradigmas (HCI) wurde durch das explosionsartig aufgetretene Social net aufgehoben. Anders als im Zeitalter der Massenmedien kommen durch das net Menschen miteinander ins Gespräch. Das bedeutet für die Künste, wegen ihrer essenziellen kommunikativen Mensch-Mensch-Beziehung, eine entscheidende Befreiung des Denkens und Fühlens.

Im Konversatorium in Karlsruhe wurde nach bestehenden oder vorgestellten Beziehungen zwischen Künsten und Social net gefragt. Das Buch nennt Befunde, Reflexionen und Konsequenzen.

André Masson - Über den psychischen Automatismus (German - download pdf or read online

By Daniel Kohlstadt

ISBN-10: 3640707966

ISBN-13: 9783640707966

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Kunst - Allgemeines, Kunsttheorie, be aware: 2,0, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Der französische Künstler André Masson (1896-1987) zählt mit seinem höchst umfangreichen Werk, welches über die Jahre hinweg durch einen permanenten stilistischen Wandel geprägt ist, zu einem der vielfältigsten Persönlichkeiten im Frankreich des ausgehenden 20. Jahrhunderts. Neben zahlreichen Gemälden und Zeichnungen entstehen Bühnenbilder, Skulpturen, Kostüme und Buchillustrationen, aber auch kunsttheoretische Vorträge, Aufsätze und antifaschistische Schriften.
In jungen Jahren zunächst stark vom Kubismus beeinflusst, schließt sich Masson nach dem Ende des 1. Weltkriegs der neuen Bewegung der Surrealisten an und entwickelt in seiner Kunst einen spontanen, psychischen Automatismus, den er aus der mind's eye schöpft. Er wird damit einer der ersten Maler, welche bewusst nach einem Zugang zum Irrationalem suchen, um die eigenen, inneren Visionen Realität werden zu lassen. Die daraus resultierenden automatischen Zeichnungen (dessins automatiques) von 1924-25 und die sogenannten Sandbilder von 1926-1927 markieren einen entscheidenden Wendepunkt in Massons Werk und begründeten gleichzeitig seinen internationalen Ruhm in der surrealistischen Bewegung. Doch was once verstand Masson unter einem psychischen Automatismus? Inwiefern beeinflusste der Automatismus seine Werke? Wodurch sollte sich seine Theorie des Automatismus von anderen Künstlern unterscheiden? Mit diesen Fragen soll sich die vorliegenden Hausarbeit nun genauer auseinandersetzen. Dazu soll im Hauptteil zunächst ein kurzer Überblick über die Ausgangssituation der Kunst zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts stattfinden, auf dessen Grundlage dann im weiteren Verlauf der Arbeit eine examine von Massons automatischen Zeichnungen erfolgt. Abschließend soll geklärt werden, inwieweit sich die Thematik des Automatismus auf seine späteren Sandbilder ausgewirkt haben. Dabei werden weitere Publikationen aus dem Bereich der Literatur, Philosophie und Kunst stets im Blick behalten. Am Ende dieser Hausarbeit folgt eine Auswertung der erzielten Ergebnisse, sowie ein Ausblick auf weitere, mögliche Untersuchungen zu dieser Thematik.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Kunst - Kunstpädagogik, be aware: bestanden, Universität Lüneburg, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Kinderzeichnungen entsprechen nicht unserer Vorstellung von Kunst. Ein Kinderbild basiert nicht auf einem frei intendierten Schaffen, sondern auf einer biologischen Entwicklung, die dem kindlichen Schöpfer keine ästhetische Freiheit gewährt. Das type versucht mit seinen Zeichnungen die Wirklichkeit zu erfassen. Gemeint ist damit die subjektive Realität, die sich im Geist des Kindes entwickelt und die während seines Reifens ständigen Veränderungen unterliegt. Die gemeinsame foundation von Künstlern und Kindern ist jedoch das Verlangen nach Aussage, Ausdruck und schöpferischer Tätigkeit, auch der Drang nach Anerkennung spielt eine Rolle. Der Übergang von der „Kinderkunst“ zur Kunst des Erwachsenen ist fliessend und beginnt, wenn das variety sich der Verbindung von seiner Innen- und Aussenwelt bewusst wird.
